i did some reaserch about this same thing, because i wanted to do a little tc racing but not blow my whole bank on it.. I found the new fiberglass xray car to be the best choice.. i know it wasnt on your list but it has the goods..
the cyclone to me looks way to toy like..., and i did not see the tamiya, however there cars generally do well, so its prolly more worth your while..
